FOR SALE BY AUCTION AT COTTONS HOTEL, MANCHESTER ROAD, KNUTSFORD ON FRIDAY 18TH NOVEMBER 2016 AT 3PM.

Hobcroft House is a substantial and distinct residence bearing a datestone of 1890 and was famously once the home of the Everest adventurer, George Mallory.

Built of brick under a slated roof, the property provides extensive accommodation over four floors requiring complete restoration throughout and also benefits from having a detached Coach House currently providing Garaging/Storage and potential to be converted into further accommodation, if required (subject to any necessary planning permission).

The accommodation is briefly arranged as follows: Reception Hall, Cloakroom, Drawing Room, separate Dining Room, Sitting Room, large Dining Kitchen and Utility Room. The Cellars comprise 5 large rooms whilst to the first floor the Landing leads to 5 Bedrooms and 3 Bathrooms. On the second floor the Landing leads to a further 5 Bedrooms and 2 Bathrooms. There is also a Store Room and Tank Room. Outside, the driveway provides off road parking for several vehicles and leads to the Coach House which comprises Double Garage, Workshop, Storeroom, further single Garage and first floor Storeroom. This also requires restoration. The paddock immediately adjoins the gardens.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The property's approved use is residential. The site lies in the Green Belt and in the public safety zone and aircraft noise contours for Manchester Airport. The site is covered by policies in the adopted Macclesfield Local Plan and the relevant planning authority is Cheshire East Council.

Green Belt policy limits new development and changes of use. Within a Public safety zone the aim is to avoid any significant increase in the number of people on the land.
